“Grey Room” by Damien Rice off the Album “9”

No capo, standard tuning.

Chords:

C/G:  332010
F:    133211
Em:   022000
G:    355433

Notes on strumming:

There are lots of hammer-ons and pull-offs in this song.  In general:

When he plays the C/G chord, he does the hammer-ons and pull-offs with the open D string 
the E note on the second fret.

When he plays the F chord, he does the hammer-ons and pull-offs with the open G string 
the A note on the second fret.

During the verse, right before you change from the F chord back to the C/G, he does a 
pull-off with the F chord like it's described above.

If you want to keep the F bass note on that F chord, you could play it with your thumb 
I like to do to keep a nice, full sound [plus it's cool to play with your thumb 
 So it goes like this:

C/G chord hammer-on:

E|--0-0-----|
B|--1-1-----|
G|--0-0-----|
D|--0h2-----|
A|--3-3-----|
E|--3-3-----|

C/G chord pull-off:

E|--0-0-----|
B|--1-1-----|
G|--0-0-----|
D|--2p0-----|
A|--3-3-----|
E|--3-3-----|

F chord hammer-on:

E|--1-1-----|
B|--1-1-----|
G|--0h2-----|
D|--3-3-----|
A|--3-3-----|
E|--1-1-----|

F chord pull-off:

E|--1-1-----|
B|--1-1-----|
G|--2p0-----|
D|--3-3-----|
A|--3-3-----|
E|--1-1-----|

I tried to get the chord placements right with the lyrics, but they might be off a bit, 
you know how it goes...

Intro:  C/G     F

	    C/G     					         F
Well I've been here before, I've sat on the floor, in a grey grey room,
	  C/G    					                   F
Where I stay in all day, I don't eat, but I play, with this grey grey food,
C/G    				        F
Desole, If someone is prayin', then I might break out,
C/G				          F
Desole, Even if I scream, I can't scream that loud,
Em      F           Em 	            F	     Em			 F
I'm all alone again,  crawling back home again, just stuck by the phone again

[Right around 1:28 he sneaks in a G note on the third fret, first string]

                C/G						 F
Yeah, well I've been here before, sat on a floor, in a grey grey mood,
        G/C								F
Where I stay up all night, And all that I write, is a grey grey tune,
   C/G						   F
So pray for me child, Just for a while, And I might break out yeah,
C/G					         F
Pray for me child, even a smile, would do for now,
[Crank up the speakers because Lisa kicks in here – go Lisa!]
Em         F          Em              F         Em                  F
So I'm all alone again, crawling back home again, just stuck by the phone again

		   G            F
I've still got me to be your sandy shore,
		   G               F
I've still got me to cross your bridge in this storm,
                   G              F
And I've still got me to keep you warm,

            C/G                    F
Warmer than warm yeah, Warmer than warm yeah,

Good job. If you listen the hammer-on's and pull-off's are evident, and your description and diagrams of them certainly will help people who don't know about them. Five stars.
